Hi!

My customer has a request to skip the calander popupbutton of the datepicker on tab. So if I have 2 datepickers and the textbox of the first datepicker has focus and I press tab, I want the textbox of the second datepicker to get focus. What I've been trying to do so far, is  to trigger a keydown event with the tab key on the focus event of the popupbutton. I was doing this with jquery. But so far it's not working at all.
Do you know how to accomplish this with jquery or javascript?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

You can achieve this by attaching the client event OnDateSelected.
Javascript
function OnDateSelected(sender,args)
 {
   var date = $find('<%= RadDatePicker2.ClientID%>');
   date.get_dateInput().focus();
 }


Thanks,
Princy.

Hi Princy,

Thanks for your solution. However, I'm searching for a more generic solution because i have to do this with all raddatepickers in my application and the next control isn't always a raddatepicker. In this way i should add a different OnDateSelected event to every raddatepicker.

I've already found the solution myself. I just set the tabindex of the popupbutton to -1 with some jquery and javascript like this:
var popupButtons = $('a[id*="_popupButton"]');
for (var i = 0; i < popupButtons.length; i++) {
  popupButtons[i].tabIndex = -1;
